Scams Affect Citizens Nationwide

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Important Announcement:  Individuals posing as federal court officials and U.S. Marshals are reportedly targeting citizens and threatening them with arrest.
Scammers are reportedly setting up call centers, establishing call-back protocols and using specific names and designated court hearing times.
A federal court will never threaten an individual or demand the immediate payment —either over the telephone or by money wire service—for fines or for not responding to a jury summons.
As a court, we want to preserve and promote the integrity of the judicial process, and these calls, particularly those targeting prospective jurors, have the opposite effect.  We urge victims of these calls to contact law enforcement authorities immediately.
